MacKenzie-Childs On The Deck


My friend Miriam is enjoying the cheese board from Ann Thibeault that we gave her and Zack as a wedding gift last year. She has a knack for entertaining, and I just knew this was the perfect gift for them.

We went on a little vacation and missed the MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale this year. When we got home, I set a table for two on the back deck and enjoyed a cupcake.  

My personal shopper, Patti at Pandora's Box, had a fun day at the Barn Sale, and found one of the three items I wished for. They were not big items, just personal favorites of mine. MacKenzie-Childs has free shipping until the end of the month, so I'm thinking of ordering two items since I saved a ton by not going ;o)  Ha!?!?

 
Edit: Here are the three items that were on my Barn Sale wish list.  Patti was able to get the Floral Thermometer and I will love it!
 
 Picadilly Garlic Keeper
 Green Enamel Pitcher  -- this looks fabulous with flowers in it.
Floral Thermometer - I love this, and it will go right outside my kitchen window so I can see it every morning when I make coffee ;o)
 
Thanks for stopping by! I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

    1. Lynn, I want to eat everything on that cheese board and the olives! But mine won't look as pretty as Miriam's.

  3. Oh, Debbie, I want to sprout wings and fly over this morning and sit in one of your lovely chairs. This setting looks so inviting! Big, big smiles here!!! I read Patti's post about the sale. Looks like a terrific day, especially since she got to see V & R. How exciting!

  5. I'm so glad your friend was able to get one of the things you wanted at the sale, Debbie! Yes, you probably saved lots of money by not going to definitely a reward is necessary :)

  6. I know you will enjoy the pretty thermometer outside your kitchen window, Debbie! That was so nice of Patti to find one of your items that you wished for.
    Your cupcake setting on the patio is just so cheerful with your M-C dishes. What fun to enjoy all those pretty things, my friend.
    I love the beautiful work of art cutting board display...both the board and the food! xo

  8. HI Debbie! Oh, what a beautiful setting with the cupcakes. As much as I love cupcakes I couldn't concentrate on them for looking at your gorgeous MC pieces! Congratulations for getting those pretty pieces. A thermometer? Who would have thought a thermometer could be so pretty? Thanks for popping in to see my Barbie clothes.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  9. Hooray that you got at least one of the items on your wish list! That doesn't always happen as I'm sure you well know!

    I like your reasoning for ordering this week. You're absolutely right, though...you would have probably spent 10-15 times as much had you made it to the Barn Sale, so your husband should be happy because you have actually worked hard to SAVE money! :-)

    I really like the pretty deck set-up for two. That's the fun and pretty way to indulge your sweet tooth! The pillows on the chairs really complement the dishes!

    That's a wonderful cheese board that you gave to your friends, and I'm glad to know she's once again able to entertain and enjoy it. Having kids is great, but it's nice to be able to do "grown up" things, too!

  14. Such a pretty setting Debbie. I have envy for your fabulous MC collection. How great Patti was able to get you your list items. It must be nice to live so close to where their barn sale is held. xo
